    I worked at The Home Depot (More than a year)

    Pros

    This role is a great experience for a budding HR professional. You get to dip your toes in many different aspects of HR. From recruitment/on-boarding, to training, staffing planning, disciplinary, and termination. You get a little bit of everything.

    Cons

    Schedule writing is extremely tedious. This is a great entry-level position, but depending on your location there may be no opportunities for advancement without making a move to another city. Also, if you're looking for a job where you can flex your creative problem solving skills, this role isn't it. HD is such a well-established company that there is already a policy/best practice for everything. Which is great for a beginner, but if you want to get into the meat of HR, you will be limited in your opportunities here.

    I have been working at The Home Depot part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    So far in my working career this is the best company I have ever worked for
    I have been in this current job for less than 3 months
    Everyone is encouraging, motivating, and wants to see you succeed.
    I was made employee of the month for December from operations, which means in the whole store, what an honor
    I feel this will be my last job, that I will retire from here. I look forward to setting out my goals for growth and then setting out to achieve them. I can see myself doing great things with Home Depot, thank you to the Brantford store 7138, you all rock

    Cons

    At this point I have nothing to report, other than this is the best place ever, and so happy to be a Homer and proud to wear orange
